Fethiye Market is open on Tuesday. Calis Market is open on Sunday, Hisaronu is open on Monday. The stuff and stallholders are all the same so you will not miss anything by catching one of the Markets.

Heard the Fethiye market was also open on a friday. Didn't need to go on this day but heard it was only a farmers market that day for just fruit and veg. Is this correct? What else do they sell?

Yes, it's just fruit and vegetables on a Friday, that's all, but great if you are self catering.

Prefer self catering in Turkey Frances-Jane, so much choice and everything is soo fresh! Also it's nice not to be restricted to one place, there's just too much to see and do!

Was hoping to go round a more traditional market as i find all the tourist goods are the same whichever market you go to

Patalangic and Karaculha markets are also on on Saturday.

Patlangic is a much smaller version of the Tuesday Market and is well frequented by Expats. Many of the stall-holders speak some English.

Karacuhla Market is a more "traditional" market and often has small livestock as well. There are far fewer foreigners that visit there, so there's far less of the "Yes please, yes please", "Cheaper Than Aldi" etc.

They're both on the Antalya Road going out of Fethiye and can easily be reached by dolmuses going to Karaculha, Kemer, Essen, Uzumlu etc.

Gocek market is on Sunday too (I think). We went there on a boat trip, then did some shopping, then had great lunch at the Kebab Hospital. Must be a contender for one of the weirdest restaurant names that we have ever heard of :-)

They do sell all those things on Gocek market - which yes Sue is on Sundays. They have all the usual market stuff in the front part - women's, men's, kids' clothing, shoes, towels, materials, belts/bags, Turkish Delight and spices, plastics, hardware etc in the front part and then at the back is the fresh produce. Some of the stallholders are local farmers, whilst others are travelling grocers that go around all the markets. The small local stalls tend to have the honey, jams, olive oils, tomato and pepper pastes etc, along with wonderful fresh farm eggs, dried herbs, plants etc. There is a "caravan" that sells chickens and has a rotisserie roasting chicken and chicken pieces, and normally there is also a fish van - these are both parked at the very back of the market. There also are 2 cheese stalls - my favourite also sells diiferent types of olives and pickles, along with sucuk (spicey sausage), home made yoghourt and bread. There is also a small cafe where you can get a tea or soft drink and sit to eat a freshly made gozleme.

We were told that the Kebab Hospital was meant to be "Kebab Hospitality" - but they ran out of space!

Hi Attagul, I did get some lovely jams, honey and olive oil from the local farmers in the gocek market. Unfortunately missed the cheeses though, the kids were hassling me as they were too hot and bothered! Will have a good wonder around next time though!

So the Kebab Hospital now has a famous name that wasn't intentional hey?

Thanks for the info
